effects of the president healthcare reform law. tonight chief national correspondent jim angle on the unintended consequences that are very real. >> small business account for two-third of all new jobs but that may be changing as they attest the burden of obamacare which forces them to provide coverage if they employ more than 50 workers. >> not just any coverage but once size fits all got designed plan with the specified essential benefits. that will cost about twice as much as what many employers currently provide. on top of that, we have seen literally almost 100% increase in the last decade. for the small business premiums going up. how exactly does this law address this? it doesn't. >> one way to avoid the burden of the new law is keep the workforce below 50 employees or limit workers' hours to less than 30 per week, defined at part-time. incentive not to create more jobs. >> number one, don't hire. youent to want to get above 50. number two, don't let them work more. keep them part-time if possible. >> many businesses across the country are doing just that. 100 workers at wendy'
